Born in Taipei in 1957, graduated from the German Department of Tamkang University in 1979, and received a master’s degree in free art sculpture from the National Academy of Arts in Dusseldorf, Germany in 1985. In 2016, Wu Mali became the first female winner in the fine arts category of the National Literature and Art Award. Wu Mali returned to Taiwan in 1985 and entered a new environment. She reconsidered the role of the artist in society, and became interested in works related to society. She turned her creative attention to installations and objects that reinterpreted history. From personal creation, it has gradually turned to interdisciplinary discussions such as caring social intervention, community connection and the enlightenment of local awareness of the masses.
